Hanamaruken Ramen's Signature Happiness Ramen is one of my Top 3 ranked Ramen's. And it remains so despite me trying so many more of the other ramen's that have sprouted all over town since this specialized cuisine's boom 5 years ago.

Firstly quick commercial, I must apologize if this is my first review of any Hanamaruken branch ever. I guess it was the same for one of my other favorites ramen's, it did take a few years before I ever wrote one. But since I am literally inside Hanamaruken Trinoma for what must be the nth time, here goes a quickie...

TIPS:
+MUST ORDER #1 - Signature Happiness Ramen! (now at P580)
I must rank this ramen's protein as probably the best one for any ramen I've ever tried (and I've tried my fair share). This big chunk of pork rib is aptly described as a "tender, slow braised custom cut soft bone pork rib" that's about 70% meat and 30% fat. Savory, salty, and it affects the shoyu tonkotsu broth in a great way by adding flavor to it. A must try and must repeat, repeat and repeat dish.

+MUST ORDER #2 - Ebi Tempura, this used to be P480, which for me was the best value for money, biggest size tempura I've tried. And well presented with the shrimp or prawn heads, too. Best for more than the solo situation I find myself as I write this. Alas it's now P580 but it should still be worth it. I and my man Kwokie K agree on this!

They also have a few rice toppings, sides and other ramen's to choose from, and they're generally good, too. Service has always been top notch, for either dine-in or kitchen. Value for money is acceptable to me, though the two Must Orders had just increased in price in recent months.

I rarely end up in the North area of Metro Manila but since we were going up to La Union last Friday, we had a quick dinner here before traveling up further north.

Since I was late (Friday-long weekend traffic), I was tasked to choose where we'll eat. |ooloo to the rescue. 128077🏼

Ordered the Spare Ribs Ramen.

Liked the soup stock. Rich and flavorful.

Loved the noodles. Perfectly cooked and I liked the thin ramen noodles.

Hated the spare ribs. 128528 It felt like I was eating Chinese adobo - sweet and salty. The taste itself wasn't so bad but I just felt it didn't go well with the ramen. 128549 The meat wasn't very good either. Not sure if it was the cook on it or the part. 128533

The other photo is the one my friend ordered. She waited for me to arrive before digging in because she knew I take photos of the food before eating 128514 #supportive

Spare Rib Ramen was good! It had tender meat, nicely done noodles, and flavorful broth that wasn't too thick. 128523

I would have given this 5127775 the food is great. Price is level with quality and quantity. Me and daughter really have a good time. Lots to improve on service, it was Sunday and the staff is undermanned. Need to wait 10m for our orders to be taken and 15m for our request to be given such as extra tempura sauce. Will definitely comeback , authentic and fresh food is what I'm after.

I tried Spicy Tobanjan. Sakto lang ang pagka-anghang for me. Not too much. Ramdam mo yung spiciness, it will make you sweat. Sakto yung luto sa noodles. I only wished na sana mas marami pa. Masarap. Kaso bitin. (Or baka sobrang gutom lang ako). But it was satisfying, made me want to order more. haha. Maganda din naman ang ambience ng place. Worth it naman yung food and service.

I'm a massive fan of Hanamaruken. It's one of my favorite ramen places, and I visit multiple times a year. Their food and atmosphere are 💯💯💯. Try their Happiness Ramen at least once--the pork is flavorful and tender, even melt-in-your-mouth. The servings are generous, and I can stay full for hours on the gigantic slab of pork. It can be pricey though, and it's in limited supply (24 bowls of Happiness Ramen a day, if I recall correctly). You can opt for their comparatively cheaper Salary Man ramen, which I also like.

Tried the chasyu ramen and loved it. The soup temperature was just right. The proportions - meat x ramen noodle x soup - was just right. Noodle was cooked perfectly. Soup wasn't too salty and oily.

My niece who is a noodle lover enjoyed her signature happiness ramen. Even my dad who is the pickiest eater I know loved his spicy something ramen.

It was lunch time when we arrived so we were waitlisted as guest number 5, got seated a few minutes after. Servers were attentive. Ambiance is good.

Nothing beats ramen on a rainy day.

Been here several times and it's still the top of my Best Ramen list!

Went here recently to cure a cold my boyfriend got and while I was having a crappy period day. Needless to say, it did wonders.

In the photo is the Spare rib ramen. Their broth is really tasty even though you'd see all the fat floating and no matter how hard I try to take it out, they'll just melt in your mouth with all that flavor.

I don't usually slurp all the soup of Ramen but in Hanamaruken everything is finished. Noodles are really firm too. The spare ribs were a bit fatty but still the kind that meat falls off and juicy with every bite.

Serving size was big and worth it to me, i'd look at other tables and see families sharing bowls but I'm happy to finish my own. No shame, that's how delicious it is! 128076🏻128077🏼

Took my #guiamfam for dinner date yesterday at this place. The place was well setup with good decor. The food was very nice and generous with the serving. Staff was very attentive to your request. I try their Signature Ramen and i love it. The beef was so tender it almost melt in my mouth plus the soup base was flavor full of ingredients. You must try the Tempura and it was good too. .

My first time in a Ramen Place.
I was not really a fan of Ramen. Japanese food? Yes. But Ramen is not my usual cup of tea... soup rather.

Originally planned to hit the gym but the officemates are a little pushy on having a Tuesday night dinner, we pushed our Ramen night in Hanamaruken.

I ordered the Spicy Tobanjan Ramen. I love spicy food so much i will kill for chilis. Haha! Anyway...

The place... is nice. It looks clean and comfy. Its a little compact and small, knowing lots of Ramen fans, I say they can still work on extending the place.

The menu... is a little limited. I guess its okay because their primary focus is to serve ramen. They have like 5-8 types of ramen and the rest were dimsums and rice bowls already.

The food... is nice. It was savory enought to be called a decent dinner. The seving was also good. I think a bowl of ramen can be split to two (depends on your level of hunger. I went there super hungry so the bowl goes solely on my stomach, just mine). I didnt expect it to be mild though, I expected something very very spicy, like flaming spicy. Knowing that my order is called "SPICY TOBANJAN". It was least of what I expected.

The price... is a little pricey for me. Im not a ramen fan so 200 up for a ramen is expensive for me na. Haha!But not at all expensive, its tolerable. The food naman is awesome.

The service... is okay. Not fast, not slow. Just fine.

The revelation for me was their Chicken Karaage. Its so delish' I wanted to order another but its already sold out, that's how good it is!!!

Overall, I will still ear at Hanamaruken... but for the chicken karaage. 128540

We decided to try this place because it is often a part of top 10 ramen lists. Sad to say, we were disappointed.

The ramen isnt good. The noodles were soggy; and the soup base was bland and too oily.

The only decent thing we ate here was the tempura (480php). The shrimps were huge, juicy, and fried well.

One thing they should really improve is the service. Only two tables were occupied, us included, but the servers took a while to get to us. They were either too busy chatting with each other, or putting on make up. Who puts on make up in public, at a restaurant?!

There are many other good ramen places in QC now. Iont think well be back here.

I have been to this place a number of times but this is the first time that I will make a review. This place is cozy, have an authentic japanese feel. Their food are so good with big servings. The ramen are chewy (which is the way i like it) and the soup base has a concentrted flavor. Definitely the best ramen house for me.
